Claire Stevens summed it up with her "why" when she said she loves finding solutions to problems. From her early childhood days where she analyzed the angles on her smore's around the campfire to her collegiate studies at Duke University she loves challenging her thinking and learning how items work. You did read that right - Duke University - and she works at NC State so that can create some fun work dynamics which bleeds over to her family where her father attended NC State and her sister attended UNC (talk about a house divided).
Claire has a passion for her craft and it radiates through when she talks about advice, mentors and even some pretty incredible projects she's been involved with. A turbine project at NC State provided a great opportunity to learn and be part of a ground breaking solution that had never been done on campus.
She loves to be active and walks through her experiences as a triathlon athlete. She's done full and half iron man events with her husband and loves to push herself to see the finish line. From popcorn to wine the lightning round was a blast and her energy is contagious. We are honored to call Claire Stevens our hero and know you will find inspiration and wisdom from her amazing story.
